The Ministry responsible for lands has announced its intention to implement a new policy regarding the reallocation of land parcels that were previously assigned.
In a press briefing held on Thursday, Chief of Staff Lionel Max Hurst provided details about the policy.
Over the course of several years, more than two thousand parcels of land have been assigned to individuals.
However, many of these individuals have either failed to make any payments for the land or have not completed the required payments.
As a result, the Lands Division plans to reassign these lands to other interested parties who are not only willing to acquire them but also make the necessary payments.
To prevent the transfer of their land to someone else, Hurst advised those who have been assigned land but have not fulfilled their payment obligations to either make immediate payments to the lands division or establish alternative arrangements to ensure their interest in the land remains registered.
If payments are not made by June 1, 2023, the Lands Division will commence the process of reassigning the unpaid lands to other interested parties.
Hurst clarified that many individuals initiated payments for the land but later discontinued them.
With a high demand for land, the government aims to facilitate the reassignment of these parcels if the outstanding payments are not received.
